There are different types of dark circles under the eyes, and it is important to distinguish between them because the treatments for each type are different.

How do dark circles under the eyes appear?

How to remove dark circles under the eyes?

Many cosmetics promise to eradicate dark circles, but in reality their effect is often limited. If you are looking for an effective way to remove dark circles, cosmetic medicine offers different solutions depending on the type of dark circles.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It has multiple functions within the body and in particular for the skin for which it ensures firmness and hydration.

To fight against dark circles, it is possible to use hyaluronic acid injections to give the lower eyelid a fuller appearance, thus avoiding the demarcation between the eyelid and the top of the cheekbone, which gives a tired and sad look.

The injection session takes about 20 minutes and the results are visible immediately. It is advisable to repeat the treatment every year or two.
